"Although we can never un-see what happened here, we can also see that children who lost their parents have grown into young adults, grandchildren have been born and good works and public service have taken root to honor those we loved and lost."

- Mayor Michael Bloomberg, National September 11th Memorial ceremony marking the 10th anniversary of the attacks at the World Trade Center, Sunday, Sept. 11, 2011, in New York.

The names of all 2,983 victims of the attacks in New York City, the Pentagon, and Pennsylvania have been etched in bronze into black stone surrounding two reflecting pools in the footprints of the Twin Towers.

May they never be forgotten.

Details On How Osama Bin Laden Death Announcement Leaked

Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaTwitter

details on how osama bin laden death news announcement leaked

Yesterday, the world already pretty much knew about Osama Bin Laden's death before President Barack Obama made his speech to the nation.

We can thank Twitter for the "heads up" on the momentous announcement, because at 10:25 p.m. last night, Keith Urbahn (chief of staff for former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld) tweeted the following:

“So I’m told by a reputable person they have killed Osama Bin Laden. Hot damn.”

“Don’t know if it’s true, but let’s pray it is.”

Following Urbahn's tweet, anonymous White House and Pentagon sources spread the word about Osama's death as well.

Here's what NBC's Brian Williams had to say about it:

"This story started to leak out in the public domain largely when some Congressional staffers started to make phone calls."

From there, the news spread virally over the Internet, until President Obama made his address to the nation at 11:35 p.m. last night.

Pentagon Study In Favor Of 'Don't Ask Don't Tell' Repeal!

pentagon-study-group-finds-70-percent-of-military-in-favor-of-dont-ask-dont-tell-repeal

How will anyone be able to argue this?

Two people close to the upcoming report by a Pentagon study group regarding the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell have come forward to reveal that according to the draft, the military can lift the ban on gay men and women serving their country openly with only MINIMAL and isolated incidents of risk to the current war!

The 370-page report continues that over 70% of the respondents - all active-duty and reserve troops - to a survey sent out by the group said that the effect of a repeal on DADT would be positive, mixed, or nonexistent!

Although the sources refused to give their names or position, they maintain that the reason that they came forward with the findings were to minimize those opposed to the ban manipulating and mischaracterizing the group's findings.

The full report will be handed over to President Obama on December 1st.

Although this is pretty much what we've known to be true all along, it's still FANTASTIC news!

The time for change is almost upon us! We sincerely pray that our President does not let us down!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!
